     3   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  The other case I have to deal with has been
     4        fixed for Wednesday and Thursday, 13th and 14th December.
     6   MR. MORRIS:  Right.  I am just sorting myself out here.  We
     7        would like to call our witness.
     9   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Which witness are you going to call first?
    11   MR. MORRIS:  Anne Casey, formally Anne Holmes.
    14                         ANNE MARIE CASEY, sworn
    15                       Examined by the Defendants
    17   MR. MORRIS:  Could you give the court your full names, please?
    18        A.  My name is Anne Casey, Anne Marie Casey.
    20   MR. MORRIS:   Could you speak up when you talk?  That does not
    21        magnify your voice.
    23   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Forget the microphone; it does not help us
    24        hear.  Speak out into the middle of the court loud and
    25        clear, please; and do not go too fast.
    27   THE WITNESS:   OK.
    29   MR. MORRIS:  There is some water for you, as well, if you want.
    30        Where do you live?
    31        A.  I live in Wexford, County Wexford.
    33   Q.   In Ireland?
    34        A.  In Ireland.
    36   Q.   You were involved with the March 1979 dispute at McDonald's
    37        in Dublin, were you?
    38        A.  Yes, I was.
    40   Q.   If we just go back to a little bit of history, personal
    41        history:  when you left school, did you work as a cashier
    42        at Woolworth's?
    43        A.  Yes.  I worked there for a number of years, four years,
    44        before taking up employment with McDonald's.
    46   Q.   Right.  When you worked at McDonald's, did you start
    47        before, in fact, the first store opened?
    48        A.  Yes, before the first store opened, they recruited
    49        their staff; and I think we were brought in for a week or
    50        two of training before the stores actually opened.  So 
    51        I worked there from the beginning. 
    53   Q.  That was Grafton Street branch?
    54        A.  That was the Grafton Street store.  That was the first
    55        store McDonald's opened up.
    57   Q.   Just to go on from when you left McDonald's, what you have
    58        been doing since.  Where did you go to first after you left
    59        McDonald's, after in fact -- well, we will come to how you
    60        left McDonald's -- but when you left?
